I stayed one night at this hotel. I chose it because I had previously stayed at Holiday Inns in the United States and they were always nice. However, though this hotel in Sandton looked good, I was displeased because the bedsheets smelled as though they were not changed. I didn't pay my money to get dirty sheets. Shame!
